actually prefer an old code pink filibuster over the surprising delay he is stuck in now. the chuck hagel nomination seemed like it was done. enough republicans had said they would support mr. hagel's nomination. enough republicans had agreed that they should not filibuster him. but he looked ready to be confirmed by the senate. but now it is not clear when that vote might happen, even though if the -- even though the outcome of that vote is a foregone conclusion. the senate armed services committee has now put off its vote on mr. hagel. and that's because 23 senate republicans are demanding that chuck hagel provide specific financial information about private corporations where he has served on the board. not information about the money he made but information about the corporations themselves. the senators are also demanding that chuck hagel give them copies of every speech he has made in the past five years, including notes you utilized for preparation or in giving the remarks, to which former senator hagel has responded, "your request for financial information regarding certain privat
senator chuck hagel, and about the benghazi terror attack. joining me now, one of the senators leading the charge, republican lindsay graham, of south carolina. senator, you were telling me just before we went on the air that you just got new information about chuck hagel. what is it? >> well, on the day of the vote, there was a blog posting about a speech i think in 2007 or 2008 he made at rutgers university and the blogger was a supporter of senator hagel and put on his blog, 6 points of the speech, question-and-answer session and point 6 was allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breath taking if he said that, had such a view and i got a letter back from senator hagel, in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that, and, the letter says he did not recall saying that and disavowed that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well if that is true, that would end the matter because he previously said in a book the jewish lobby intimidates members of congres
on chuck hagel as secretary of defense until the white house provides more information on something that has nothing to do with chuck hagel. >> i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through until we get answers about what the president did personally when it came to the benghazi debacle. >> just to be clear, according to senator lindsey graham, a 38-day confirmation process is the ekwifl ens of jamming somebody through. hagel's confirmation was approved by the senate armed services committee on tuesday along party lines, but yesterday republicans blocked an up or down simple majority vote planned by harry reid, so tomorrow the majority leader has scheduled a cloture vote, or if we go to the rule video, the only procedure by which the senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill or other matter and thereby overcome a filibuster. the procedure requires 60 votes, so now democrats will need support from 60 senators just to overcome the filibuster and schedule a vote on chuck hagel. >> there has never in the history of the country been a filibuster of a def
the man the president picked to succeed him, former nebraska senator chuck hagel telling me members of the armed services committee passed up the opportunity for more important questions in order to launch partisan attacks. >> it's pretty obvious that the political knives were out for chuck hagel. >> that's what you think it was. it was totally partisan? >> what disappointed me, they talked about past quotes. what about the war in afghanist afghanistan, the war on terrorism and the budger sequester. >> despite his performance, hagel's confirmation is looking more likely after a second republican told "the lincoln journal star" saying "he will stand side by side with our allies, be firm with our enemies and use good judgment." the president from former obama white house press secretary robert gibbs on "meet the press" said the following. >> the disconcerting thing obviously for anybody that watched, he seemed unimpressive and unprepared on the questions he quite frankly he knew was coming. >> gibbs trying to soften his criticism, saying secretary tim geithner turned his way around. h
chuck hagel who has been nominated to be secretary of defense has been proposing. he has said so many things against us even as a nation being nuclear armed and ready, that it is very disturbing to people all across the country. bill: if you think that, do you think we've lost the argument with iran over its nuclear program? is that time passed? >> well, i think that the time has passed. they now view it as, us versus them. sanctions have worked to lower the value of their currency. sanctions have had an impact on people through throughout the country of iran. but i don't believe they have had the impact that has been desired against the iranian government. bill: why are we sitting down and talking again? what's the expectation from something like this? >> i think very little would be expected. i would expect the iranians to have their arms folded in front of their chest and sitting there, perhaps, listening, but basically they're continuing to run out the clock. they may even talk a little bit about wanting to negotiate but they have no interest in, my opinion, bill, in negotiating o
-cents a share. bill: the stage is set for a fight over chuck hagel. senate democrats will hold a straight up or down vote on his confirmation friday in an attempt to break a republican filibuster, meaning that hagel will need 60 votes, five of them from republicans now, many of whom who threatened to block his confirmation. here is lindsey graham as to why republicans are not sold on hagel. >> the debate on chuck hagel is not over. it has not been serious, we don't have the information we need and i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through until we get answers about what the president did personally when it came to the benghazi debacle. democrats had no problem doing that with bush and quite frankly they did the country a service by probing into failure. bill: what is going to happen now, bret baier is anchor of special ror. how d special report? how are you doing. >> reporter: good morning, bill. bill: harry reid is talking about this potentially on the floor of the senate. if there is news we'll bring it to our viewers. graham says the debate is not over, it has
. the lew confirmation for treasury secretary. hagel for defense and brennan for the cia. will you vote against any of those men? >> i'm most concerned about brennan. i will demand answers this week. senator widen asked can they do drone strikes in the united states? and brennan went on talking about optimizing transparency and never answered the question. until i get an answer can a drone strike kill an american in america. can you kill an american in america with only the president's word? i will demand an answer to that question. and it's very unseemly that a politician gets to decide the death of an american citizen. they should answer about the 16-year-old boy, alawaki's son that was killed in a separate strike. if you go overseas, take up arms, i'm probably for executing you, i want to hear the evidence, have a judge and jury. it can be fairly swift, but there needs to be a trial for treason, the president, a politician, republican or democrat, should never get to decide someone's death flipping through flash cards, do you want to kill him? i don't know. let's go ahead and kill hi
in benghazi. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting, did the president ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the libyan government to help these folks? what did the president do? yes, i'm going to ask my colleagues just like they did with john bolton, joe biden said, no confirmation without information. no confirmation without information. >> you are saying that you are going to block the nominations -- you're going to block them from coming to a vote until you get an answer? >> yes. >> now, john mccain has already think that he doesn't think republicans ought to filibuster this. what will you do? you're just going to put a hold on it? >> yeah, i'm not filibustering. this is a national security failure of monumental proportions, and i'm not going to stop until we get to the bottom of it. >> first of all, i'm shocked. you know, lindsey graham doesn't usually like getting in front of a camera and going on the sunday talk shows. so i'm shocked that li
and a doughnut with david letterman. >>> and closing in on confirmation. chuck hagel moves a step closer to becoming the next secretary of defense. >>> name the one cabinet nominee who was rejected by the senate twice. tweet me an answer @chucktodd or @dailyrundown. >>> time for the "your business" entrepreneur of the week. justin owns city aquariums in brooklyn, new york. his unique designs and personal attention to his customer' fish have gained him a celebrity clientele. a customer base he says can call his company any time, day or night if they need help. for more watch "your business" sunday mornings at 7:30 on msnbc. and...done. did you just turn your ringer off so no one would interrupt us? oh no, i... just used my geico app to get a tow truck. it's gonna be 30 minutes. oh, so that means that we won't be stuck up here, for hours, with nothing to do. oh i get it, you wanna pass the time, huh.

confirmations coming up. we have the liu confirmation for treasury secretary, hagel for defense, as well as brennan for the cia. are you going to vote against any of those men? >> i'm most concerned about brennan. i'm going to demand answers this week. senator wyden asked can they do drone strikes in the united states? and brennan went on talking about optimizing transparency and never answered the question. until i get an answer whether you can kill an american citizen in america, in america, that's what wyden asked, can you kill an american in america with only the president's word and he never answered the question. i will demand an answer to that question. i think it's very unseemly that a politician gets to decide the death of an american citizen. they should answer about the 16-year-old boy, al alawaki's son that was killed in a separate strike. they've never answered that. >> right. >> i think you should be tried for treason. if you're an american citizen and go overseas and take up arms, i'm probably for executing you, but i would want to hear the evidence, have a judge and jury.
's blocking of further consideration of the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. we'll be back here in chicago as soon as the president arrives. >> good morning, thanks for talking with us. >> how unusual is it to have the president's pick blocked at this stage of the game? guest: it is very unusual. the senator has never filibustered the president's nomination for the defense secretary. the most bizarre thing, i think, is probably the most frustrating for the people watching this, particularly outside of washington, is that you know, former senator hagel is former republican senator, mind you. the reason why it was defeated because the majority leader harry reid switched his vote to no so he could bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recease. a lot of republican senators were saying that they did not want this choice filibustered. even if they wanted to vote no on his nomination he at least deserves an up down vote in order to be approved. the republicans decided to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on i

've changed their mind. now sequestration, we might do it. >> i love when they bring this up during the hagel hearing and they talk about sequestration, and they go the witness and talking about what a disaster sequestration would be for the defense budget. if you just arrived from another country or mars you would be like who are the monsters who came up with the sequestration idea? who could have possibly voted for this thing? it is the people sitting that crafted it. >> the ironies speak like a birthday cake. unfortunately, we have to leave it there. we are out of time. >> can we kick the can? >> we are going to kick the can down the road. do not forget to catch chris and paul krugman this weekend.

secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the kind of advocate they need as the nation emerges from more than a decade of war. lastly, i'm honored to be here, as i said, as a catholic and as a proud graduate of another jesuit institution, santa clara university. my time in the university's undergraduate and law school, in many ways shaped the rest of my life as this education will shape the rest of your lives. i remain deeply thankful to the jesuits for the outstanding education that i received. having gone through seven years of philosophy and syllogisms and theology and cannon law, i have been blessed by all the grace and skepticism that jesuits can give. more importantly, i've been shaped by what i believe is their pragmatic approach to life and to faith and to the issues in general. it was that education and my catholic upbringing, particularly as the son of italian immigrants, that instilled in me the very core principles and values that i carry with me till t
is the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. you have been very strongly, not against him, per se, but you want more information about him. are you satisfied? >> i think he's an out liar when it comes to our possibly regarding iran and israel. you'll find a hard time finding anyone more antagonistic toward israel on the way he votes. >> doesn't the president have the right to pick his own defense secretary? >> yes. the question is, will we vote for cloture. i haven't found anything that will make it an extraordinary circumstance to vote against cloture. >> so you're going to allow that final vote to go through. but you won't vote to support him? >> that's the way it looks right now, as of about whatever time it is, i intend to vote for cloture, and he's become the secretary of defense, and if i can help him, i will. >> you're vote for cloture. just to explain to our viewers, you will not allow a filibuster to go through. he will need 51 votes as opposed to 60. >> that's right. >> a lot to sgoing on on capito hill. good to see you. >> other news we have been following. that
